The Screen Suffolk tent at Latitude featured advice, guest speakers and film screenings for teenagers and aspiring filmmakers, with hundreds gaining inspiration across the weekend.

Among the guest speakers were The Bridge co-writers Shay Kuehlmann and Kate Roxburgh who spoke about their experience of filming in Suffolk, Helen Robinson from United Agents on the topic of agents and managers, and talks on financing films, breaking into the industry and editing.

Screen Suffolk director Karen Everett said: “For us the most positive outcome was to see lots of young people signing up via the Screen Suffolk website to register for training and experience opportunities as they arise.”
